When friends become strangers…

It is night, outside are some drunken guys trying to sing something that seems to be a russian song, I am tired, and discovered two things. First, three of my friends have become strangers to me, in different degrees, but they were here, and I couldn’t help but notice that there’s not much to say. We live in different worlds now, I left theirs and there is no way back. It doesn’t even bother me. And that is what shocks me.

What should shock me isn’t the fact that I have lost some friends (I didn’t really lose them. I just don’t feel connected to them anymore). It is that they are and in the past I was, too, stuck in a very tiny world that consists of drinking wine, listening to the same songs over and over again, and cracking jokes that contain something related to genitals, fecal matter or both (well I didn’t tell jokes, not even in the past, but…I wasted so much time listening to this kind of stuff…). And then…reciting of the same stories that are told every time people meet.

I am glad that there are some people around me with whom I can relate. Not many, not enough, not deeply enough, but at least it is a start.

  1. That is a brilliant title, „When Friends Become Strangers“. The post its self, or the content, is brutal. Me, too I thought as I’ve just gone through something very similar.

  2. Yes, it is brutal. But saying it less brutal would be a lie. Still it makes me sad, but it is probably something we all have to go through from time to time.

  3. It’s the thing that happens when we grow up: We tend not to keep every relationship alive. It is not a bad thing, as long as we sort out who we would like to stay connected with [and then of course do it] and add new relationships that fit our current state …

    Your post’s title indeed sounds brutal, but I’d say it’s just what life’s about.
